Traffic Alert: Montchanin Road Construction

Montchanin Road is currently closed between Buck Road and Campbell Road/Route 82

The Greenville area continues to be beset with traffic detours thanks to road work on major arteries.  The latest backups and reroutings experienced by drivers are resulting from Eastern Penn Railroad’s replacement of railroad crossings across and nearby Montchanin Road (AKA, Rte. 100).

DelDOT tells us that the current work on Montchanin Road between Buck and Kirk Roads is expected to be completed this Sunday night, May 12. 


Work will then shift on Monday, May 13 to the railroad crossing on Rte. 100 by Rockland Road and continue until Wednesday, May 22. That area of Rte. 100 will remain closed for those two weeks while the rail company performs this work, which entails removing and then replacing the entire crossing.  

DelDOT said, “The only way to do this is to close the road, unfortunately. But the result will be a much smoother ride.”
